Stat of the Week
All time top 100 miles grouped by meet

Texas Sweeps GHAC Relays
Cinco Ranch Katy boys, A&M Consolidated girls
win first online high school track meet
Cinco Ranch added the GHAC crown to their second straight Texas 5A championship. They were led by the stellar trio of Scott Sellers (HJ), Queito Teasley (LJ) and Trevor Gerland (110H).
A&M Consolidated's strength is in distance (Jocelyn Gardner) and throws (Candis Kelley). Those events are undervalued in the sprint-centric Texas state meet scoring system, but they played well in the GHAC Relays, which test the spectrum of skills in track and field. MORE

Steve (steveu) Underwood says: "God On The Starting Line is a wonderful gift to the world of prep distance running. It's kind of like eating, oh, a premium triple chocolate fudge brownie ice cream sundae. You might feel stuffed and a little woozy, but like you've never devoured anything so delicious."

Recent preps Kerron Clement TX (U. Florida) and Sanya Richards FL (U. Texas) won $25,000 checks as 2005 VISA Champions. Clement won the 400m hurdles in 47.24, fastest in this event in 7 years, and Richards won the 400 meters in 49.28, fastest in the world this year. Lashinda Demus, who set a PR in 400H at 53.35, was just one point behind Richards in the VISA point standings. photo by Vic Sailer / PhotoRun
Reno NV soph Marie Lawrence chews gum when she runs. Here, she even blew a bubble while going over a barrier in the steeple chase. DyeStatCal's Doug Speck noticed Marie's gum chewing at last year's JO Outdoors Track and reported:
I asked Marie if she always chews gum when she runs and she replied that she did. She can be zooming by at sub 5:00 mile pace and casually chewing her gum - I was taking pictures right next to the track and she looked so relaxed zooming along in the race and calmly chewing at the same relaxed pace the entire way. Okay, so my next question afterwards was whether she had ever swallowed it while in a race or while running. She simply replied, "No."
